While Travis Browne continues to train in case an injury occurs and he needs to step in at UFC 146 later this month, “Hapa” now has an opponent confirmed for his next fight and it isn’t attached to the May card.
Rather, Browne will meet Ben Rothwell at UFC on FOX 4. The show is scheduled for August 4 with Los Angeles serving as host.
Rothwell (32-8) positioned himself nicely in the UFC’s heavyweight division by knocking out Brendan Schaub last month. The win not only evened his UFC mark at 2-2 but gave him a quality win in the promotion.
Meanwhile, Browne (13-0-1) should post a great challenge for Rothwell. Stefan Struve and Chad Griggs are among Browne’s latest victims, the latter of which came at the same card as Rothwell’s win over Schaub.
